Hi there,

Over the past couple of weeks, Firefox (83.0 64 bit) has started displaying distorted text. It will come up on a site and the only way to get it back to normal is to highlight the text. I have attached an image of the issue.

Thanks!

That setting was already enabled. Turning it off and on again does not fix the problem.
